This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

HugeLunatic made the 'Almost Indestructible Stairs In Concrete' and the 'Country Stairs' recolourable, not happy with the original stair colours I decided to recolour them and of course I had to do the 'Balustrade Minimaal' and the 'Tornado Solid Steel Fence' as well. The step colours are all the same, it is the railings that have been recoloured so you will have to place the rails on the stairs, to see which colour they are (they are in alphabetical order, by colour). The Country Stair recolours are base game compatible, however, you will need University for the 'Almost Indestructible Stairs In Concrete'. The 'Balustrade Minimaal' and the 'Tornado Solid Steel Fence' will need at least 1 EP to work, the same as other custom fences. Last minute addition the "Pigue Pen" Metal Gate in all 10 colours.

I have not included the recolourable 'Country Stairs' - MESH or 'Indestructible Concrete Stairs' - MESH by HugeLunatic, needed for these recolours to show in your game, you will have to get them HERE and HERE.

The 'Country Stairs' and "Pigue Pen" Metal Gate are base game, the 'Almost Indestructible Stairs In Concrete' are University and at least 1 EP is required for the 'Tornado Solid Steel Fence' and 'Balustrade Minimaal'!

Quote from mustluvcatz:
"You actually don't need Uni for HL's recolorable version of the concrete stairs. I have those and don't have Uni. (Use them all the time! I was so happy when I found out Uni wasn't needed!) What I'm not sure of is if you have to have at least 1 EP for them to work though."

Quote from HugeLunatic:
"The indestructible stairs don't require Uni. The stairs have been added to several of the later EPs. Looking at game files, it is possible they are available in all of the EPs. I know of users who have OFB or Pets and they work for sure."
